Today in school our teacher did a project which involved the splitting of Brown eyed people and Blue eyed people. She told us, "If you had brown eyes at the time you were sent to a concentration camp." I go on with saying, "What about Jews who had Blue eyes and Blonde Hair?" Her response was, "They were okay..." Man was I pissed I would have said, "Ultimately, Jews were circumcised at the time and that was one of the ways the SS could distinguish a Jew from a non-Jew." but I didn't want to be grotesque. I'm well aware of the persecution of Jehovah witnesses and Gypsies.
Seriously, how stupid can people be... I'm not trying to stick up for Hitler by no means. I just hate how people make assumptions without proof Hitler had blue eyes
Although Adolf Hitler claimed the Germans were of of a superior "Aryan" race of white, tall, blonde hair, blue eyed individuals. He himself was of modest height, blue -eyed, and brown-haired.
I changed the information from brown to blue. In Goebbels Diaries, which are available in Germany (in opposite to "Mein Kampf"), Goebbels wrote about his first meeting with Hitler: "I was fascinated by Hitlers blue eyes". Traudl Junge, his last secretary (see the movie: "Der Untergang") often told in interviews, that people were amazed about Hitlers blue eyes.
While color photographs in close up of Hitlers face that would show the specific color aren't really available as they would be for a more recent figure, those available clearly show that he had a light eye color. That combined with various historical sources such as the above conclusively prove he had blue eyes.
A Jew is recognised as anyone who has converted to Judaism or whose mother was Jewish. Thus, many Jews can have blonde hair and blue eyes, either from having converted to Judaism or having ancestors who converted to Judaism. Many Ashkenazic Jews have fair complexions.
